I tried two new recipes in February and they were both keepers! I saw a package of Sausage Tortellini in the freezer case at Aldi and knew it would be great for a weeknight meal. The recipe I found on Pinterest for Twenty Minute Easy Tortellini Bake was exactly what I wanted – quick and simple with only a few ingredients. I used Prego Italian Sausage & Garlic Meat Sauce and we loved the flavors combined with the sausage pasta. I served this dish with a side salad and my fancy garlic bread (hot dog buns, buttered and sprinkled with parmesan cheese, garlic salt and Italian seasoning; broiled for 3 minutes until the edges get toasty). Carbs and tomato sauce for the win!
The second recipe I tried and loved this month was Creamy Zuppa Toscana Soup. This is one of Paul’s favorite soups to order at Olive Garden, and when I saw the copycat recipe on Carolina Charm I knew I had to try it! Paul loved it – there were no leftovers! This soup is hearty and sure to please the meat and potatoes lover in your house.
Have you tried any new recipes lately? I’ve teamed up again this month with Katie from Cup of Tea and Whitney from Polka-Dotty Place to share all the new recipes we tried and loved during February. Be sure and check out Katie and Whitney’s posts for more menu inspiration. We all have fairly different cooking styles & preferences, so I know there will be something for everyone.
